A Dakini in Vanilla is little help only against a Kamau sniper in FT thanks to SSL2. Yes, you'll block LoF but all the point of the discussion for the last replies was to be able to move without using White noise. 4 shots on 11 against 2 on 16 is ok when you have ARM, BTS and W to tank the DA/stun rounds coming at you. If you fail your first FtF with your Dakini, the remote will be down 80% of the time, needing some repair before trying again. Achilles has 3W and ARM4/BTS6 to tank and try again in addition to BS15 (so hitting on 12). The best way to deal with Varuna in Aleph Vanilla is still Drakios but I don't remind him being a very popular choice. Scylla can try something too but she is harder to manoeuver.
